  • Abstract We have analyzed potential collision activities among orbiting objects for the next 100 years from the low Earth orbit (LEO), medium Earth orbit (MEO), to geosynchronous orbit (GEO) regions. The analysis was based on results from the NASA orbital debris evolutionary model, LEGEND. A total of 30 Monte-Carlo simulations were performed. The 1996-to-2003 launch cycle was repeated in the future projection. No postmission disposal options were applied to satellites and rocket bodies. All… CONTINUE READING
